Riesling Rocks returns to Hartenberg Wine Estate

Make your way to Hartenberg Wine Estate for the second Riesling Rocks festival in the Stellenbosch Winelands on Saturday, 9 February 2013, and enjoy some of the finest flagship Rieslings from top cellars paired with superb deli fare.

Carl Schultz, celebrated Hartenberg winemaker and one of South Africa’s finest Riesling masters, has invited the crème de la crème of cellars to showcase their top Weisser/Rhine Rieslings at this fabulous food and wine celebration.

Possibly the most versatile of all wines, Riesling can be enjoyed with practically any food. Dry style Rieslings meld beautifully with a wide range of dishes from sushi and gravadlax to oysters and antipasti. Off-dry Rieslings make excellent pairings with spicier foods such as Thai prawns, chorizo or even herring and rollmops. The sweeter Rieslings are perfect for cutting through ultra-rich foods such as pates and terrines, duck and roast pork and are a perfect foil for curries. Rieslings also make fine dessert wines ideal with fruit tarts, cheeses, peacan nut pie and even tangy lemon tart.

Riesling Rocks at Hartenberg takes place on Saturday, 9 February 2013 from 12h00 noon until 17h00. Tickets cost R180 per person, including a wine glass and are available either directly from Hartenberg Estate or online at www.webtickets.co.za.
